    Default Sax player on track "native new yorker"

    Any ideas as to who plays the cool sax solo on track "native new yorker" by Odyssey? About to learn it & wondered who was/their setup? Great sound/phrasing.
    Cheers

    It was George Young on Alto sax. I know because I recorded it. Michael played in the horn section during the ensemble recordings, but that solo is Georgie.

    Love that od Disco theme which was quite popular back then and I swear that is Mike Brecker on Tenor sax on the solos. has all of the Breckerisms and soul funk jazz tight solos which was a hallmark for Mike. still missed by the way.
